Prepared by residents and fellows at Washington University School of Medicine, this pocket-sized survival guide provides all the essential information that every surgery intern needs from Day 1 on the wards-including daily routine, rounds, chart reviews, preoperative and postoperative care, operating room conduct, radiology, critical care, and interaction with families, colleagues, and allied health professionals. Content includes algorithms, useful formulas, patient notes, and common calls and complaints. Comprehensive sections on common problems in general surgery, neurosurgery, orthopaedic surgery, urology, and plastic surgery present evaluation, diagnostic testing, and treatment in an easy-to-follow format. Other chapters cover crashing patients, tubes and drains, bleeding, codes, and nutrition.
The Washington Manual (R) Surgery Survival Guide is also available electronically for handheld computers. See PDA listing for details.
